The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
Set by the United Nations General Assembly, there are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in total.
As a business we use the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to track our impacts and prioritise focus by source country. Since 2017 we have undertaken an annual materiality assessment against the SDGs at a country level to understand how both our impact and risk of each of the 17 goals varies globally and to track the impacts that our business and wider sustainability activities have on their achievement. Our materiality matrix is used to identify our most material areas and help prioritise where we should put our current focus as well as future strategy development and risk assessment planning.
In this section we define our focus goals.
